NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q
The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in January 2020. This GPU is good at gaming with a score of 35% in our PC benchmark.
The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q has 6 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 257 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 192 bits. If you plan on gaming at higher resolutions with higher quality textures, more memory is important. Without enough memory, performance will be degraded.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q GPU core runs at a frequency of 975 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1185 MHz. The clock runs at a speed called the clock speed. It dictates the number of updates per second that the GPU can process. Overclocking a chip, which means increasing the clock speed will improve the performance. However, thermals and power efficiency may be diminished.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 65W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
